Don't listen to too much negative on TripAdvisor. I've been here many many many times and it's simply one of the best places to eat in town! Fresh burgers, buttery buns, tasty hot dogs, great fries and onion rings - even hand-dipped shakes and malts! Everything is made to order so of course it takes awhile but it's a fun... More

Burgers, fries, milkshakes etc. very basic, a little pricey and slow service. Probably wouldn't return

An older couple has operated this place since it opened in 2005 and it is a treat to watch them work and serve their customers. Talk about hustle! Because it is just the two of them you may wait a bit...but the burger and fries are worth it!

The burger was fresh, and hand made. The fires were good. and plenty. The shake is to die for. It was so yummy, so thick you almost have to have a spoon...If you have not been here...GO!

This is a burger and dog joint just as its name suggests. The kids really enjoyed watching it be made as we sat at the bar. The burgers and dogs were good and we would stop in again if we were in the area.

My son and I were in town visiting and saw a Bubbalu's and thought we'd love to have a hot dog. Wrong. First we walked in and the cook said menus on the counter and order by the register. Fine, but I was only a couple of feet from register but had to step over and order even though we... More

I work just across the street as a volunteer host and guide. When I am hungry for a good old fashion hamburger I head to BubbaLu's. Service is great, she cooks the burger to my liking. These are the kind that runs down your arm and taste like a hamburger should. Not your fast food burger, this one is thick... More

The hamburgers were very tasty and fresh! I loved the French fries. The service was prompt and friendly. A little confusing as you order at the counter and then find a place to sit. It is a very quaint looking place and very clean.

What started out as no big deal turned into the worst customer service experience of my life. Stopped by for lunch after a 3 hr drive, we 3 more hours ahead. Placed our order, when we received our food, an order of fries were missing. No big deal! They said we didn't pay for fries, we decided not to place... More
